Why is Godzilla pink now?

Godzilla takes on plenty of Titans in Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, but why is he pink now? Here’s everything you need to know.

The most recent MonsterVerse release, Godzilla x Kong, takes on where the 2021 original Godzilla vs. Kong left off. This time, in order to take on some much greater Titans in town, the two are establishing an unexpected— and uneasy— partnership.

It may not be common knowledge for anyone who are unfamiliar with the series or have only seen Godzilla and Kong go it alone that these films have much more monsters than first appear.

The Godzilla-Kong sequel does prompt one particular question — why is Godzilla pink now? Here’s what you need to know.

Why is Godzilla pink?

Godzilla turns pink in Godzilla x Kong after defeating Titan Tiamat, entering her lair, and absorbing its radiation.

Godzilla is pulled closer to the signal’s throbbing heart by a series of mysterious radio shocks that both Hollow Earth and the surface Earth feel. As the human character figures out what’s going on, he encounters a number of Titans around Europe who lead him to Tiamat.

For those who do not know, Tiamat is a terrifying underwater Titan that made his initial appearance in Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

The only thing preventing Godzilla from reaching Kong’s position in Hollow Earth is Tiamat. The two fight it out in a thrilling underwater combat that comes to the predictable conclusion.

Godzilla examines Tiamat’s lair, soaking up the radioactivity within now that she poses no threat. Godzilla has been using nuclear energy from a variety of sources, including a nuclear base in rural France, for the majority of the film.

Godzilla’s characteristic blue spikes have become a vivid pink as he rises from the ocean.

Speaking to Total Film, director Adam Wingard explained: “Very specifically in the last film, I wanted Godzilla to have a continuity, to look the way that he had in King of the Monsters and the 2014 Godzilla. But then I didn’t get a chance at doing my version of Godzilla.

“So now I wanted to do different things with the spines, and try different colors. I didn’t want it to just be random; it’s part of the story.”
